Denmark new 1,000-krone note confirmed


Dansmark National Bank unveiled the design of the new 1,000 krone (US$189) note issued 24 May 2011.

Confirmed with A0 prefix and the following signature combination (Hugo Frey Jensen and Lars Gerrild Sørensen):


Confirmed with A2 prefix and the following signature combinations:


The Great Belt Bridge
The Great Belt Bridge, consisting of the Eastern and Western sections was opened in 1998. The Eastern section links the island of Sprogø to Zealand and is 6,790 metres long. The Great Belt's Eastern Channel, spanned by the suspension bridge, has the status of international waters. The maximum vertical clearance is 65 metres. At 254 metres, the pylons are two of the highest points in Denmark.

The Sun Chariot
The Sun Chariot was found in September 1902 when Trundholm Bog in north-western Zealand was ploughed for the first time. It was made in the early Bronze Age in approximately 1400 BC. The elegant spiral ornamentation adorning the golden sun disc reveals its Nordic origins. The Sun Chariot demonstrates the belief that the sun was drawn on its eternal journey by a divine horse. However, the chariot is not intrinsic to this belief. Both the sun disc and horse are mounted on wheels to show the movement of the sun.

Back: 4th-centrury bronze pail from Keldby on island of Møn; map. Solid security thread and windowed Motion security thread. Watermark: Unknown and electrotype 500. Printer: Unknown. 155 x 72 mm. Intro: 15.02.2011.

Oddly enough, the (20)10 dated note has been confirmed with prefix A2, and the (20)11 dated notes have been confirmed with prefixes A0 and A1.

Confirmed with the following signature pairs:
Torben Nielsen, Governor; Lars Gerrild Sørensen, Head of Banking Services
Nils Bernstein, Governor; Lars Gerrild Sørensen, Head of Banking Services
Jens Thomesen, Governor; Lars Gerrild Sørensen, Head of Banking Services

Dronning Alexandrines Bro
The bridge Dronning Alexandrines Bro, also called the Møn Bridge, was opened in 1943. The bridge across Ulvsund connects Kalvehave on South Zealand with the island of Møn. Dronning Alexandrines Bro is 746 metres long and has a maximum vertical clearance of 26 metres.

The bronze pail
The bronze pail from Keldby on the island of Møn was unearthed by a plough near Trehøje in the period before 1826. It was probably made in the 4th or early 3rd century BC. Other pails closely resembling this pail have been found in the Thracian area of the Black Sea in Southern Ukraine. Judging by the clearly Greek inspired ornamentation and shape, the pail could have been made in Macedonia or the Greek Black Sea colonies.

UPDATE:
New signature variety confirmed as follows.

Signature (Torben Nielsen, Governor; Lars Gerrild Sørensen, Head of Banking Services).

Danmarks Nationalbank has issued the following press release:

19 October 2010 a new 200-krone [US$37.25] banknote will be issued. The new series makes it even more difficult to counterfeit or copy genuine banknotes. The banknotes have been designed by the artist Karin Birgitte Lund and have Danish bridges and prehistoric finds as their motifs. All Danish banknotes issued since the substitution of money in 1945 can be exchanged at face value at Danmarks Nationalbank.

Why issue new banknotes?
Technological advances mean that counterfeiters constantly gain access to improved tools for copying genuine banknotes. To remain one step ahead, Danmarks Nationalbank in 2006 initiated the process of designing a new banknote series with new security features, a replacement for the current series from 1997.

Among the new security features is a window thread with a moving wave pattern [Crane’s Motion thread]. Another feature is a new, sophisticated hologram that reflects light in different colours. The new banknotes will also have the traditional security features such as the watermark and the hidden security thread.

What do the new banknotes look like?
The theme of the new banknotes is Danish bridges and the surrounding landscapes, or details from these landscapes. The artist Karin Birgitte Lund has chosen to interpret this theme in two ways: bridges as links between various parts of Denmark and as links between the past and the present. The present is represented by the bridges, the past by five distinctive prehistoric objects found near the bridges.

When will the new banknotes be issued?
The expected schedule for introducing the remaining new banknotes is as follows:

• 500 kroner: February 2011 – depicting Queen Alexandrine's Bridge and the bronze vessel from Keldby

• 1,000 kroner: May 2011 – depicting the Great Belt Bridge and the Sun Chariot

What is being done for the visually impaired?
In the interests of the blind and partially sighted, the 100- and 200-krone banknotes will have embossed print to make it easier to distinguish them from each other. Like the current series, the banknotes will differ in size, which is also helpful to the blind and partially sighted.

Demark new 100-krone note confirmed


According to Danmarks Nationalbank, the 100-krone (US$17.70) note issued on 4 May 2010 depicts The Old Little Belt Bridge on front and The Hindsgavl Dagger on back. This signature pair is of Torben Nielsen, Governor and Lars Gerrild Sørensen, Head of Banking Services.

The following signature combo has also been confirmed for Nils Bernstein, Governor; and Lars Gerrild Sørensen, Head of Banking Services:


The Old Little Belt Bridge
The Old Little Belt Bridge, linking Erritsø in Jutland to Middelfart on Funen, was opened in 1935. The bridge was originally planned as a railway bridge in 1924, but the decision was later made to include roadways. The bridge is 1,178 metres long and has a maximum vertical clearance of 33 metres.

The Hindsgavl Dagger
The finest example of a flint-knapped dagger is the 29.5 cm long flint dagger that was found in about 1867 on the island of Fænø in the Little Belt opposite the Hindsgavl peninsula. This type of dagger is called the 'fish-tail design' due to the shape of the handle. The Stone Age dagger is from the latter part of the Dagger Period, 1900-1700 BC, and resembles metal daggers that have handles topped with an oval disk. The exquisite flint knapping shows the lengths to which the flint knappers went to compete with the increasingly popular metal goods that ultimately put the craft of flint knapping out of business.

Denmark new 50-kroner note confirmed

On 11 August 2009, Danmarks Nationalbank issued a new 50-kroner (US$9.50) note, the first in a new Danish series intended to make it even more difficult to counterfeit or copy genuine banknotes. Among the new security features is Crane’s windowed Motion thread on the back, which was first used by Sweden and is now incorporated in Mexico’s high-denomination notes. Another feature is a new, sophisticated hologram on the front that reflects light in different colors. The new banknotes will also have the traditional security features such as a watermark with electrotype 50, a solid security thread, and Omron rings.

The theme of the new banknotes is Danish bridges and the surrounding landscapes, or details from these landscapes. The artist Karin Birgitte Lund has chosen to interpret this theme in two ways: bridges as links between various parts of Denmark and as links between the past and the present. The present is represented by the bridges, the past by five distinctive prehistoric objects found near the bridges.

The front of the 50-kroner note depicts the Sallingsund Bridge. The back features a Skarpsalling vessel in a field and a map at right.
